Leafs recall Carter Ashton

Carter Ashton has been recalled from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL. He had been loaned to the Leafs’ minor league affiliate for conditioning purposes on December 19.

In November, Ashton received a 20-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Ashton, 23, has played three games with the Leafs so far this season, going pointless.

He has collected two assists in three outings with the Marlies in 2014-15.
